So yeah....the FBO to beta.sam transition is underway. As I've mentioned in a previous post, there are certain to be some issues.
Here's one, Interested Vendor List doesn't automatically show up. According to the beta.sam FAQ's:
The intent of this feature is to collect a list of vendors interested in competing for the opportunity or vendors interested in subcontracting opportunities. The contracting officer is the only person who can determine whether to include an IVL and the view settings for an IVL. Both contracting officers and contract specialists can view an IVL. Vendors responding to an IVL must be logged into beta.SAM.gov to respond.
So that means each contract officer for each posting must allow for the IVL to show up. This use to show up as a default on FBO. I'm sure they have their reasons, but this is different.
